Re: How do I use the washing machine?

There are 2 types I have come across in Switzerland.

One is a credit card size, that will need money put on it before you can use it, had to get the Haus person to do it.

The other is chunky and gets charged to one' electric bill.

think your one is the credit card type. Whenever you get it topped up with money, perhaps ask someone if they know the charges for using the machine. usually different charge for 40 & 60 degrees. If you have a dryer there is a charge I think per 30 minutes.

Oh BTW usually the washing/dryer machines have this thing when they switch off during the lunch-breaks & start up again when that break is finished. It is because of the surge during lunch-time when a number of people go home to cook their lunch. The timings vary from place to place.

good luck
